by ethnic on September 22, 2008

Birth Name: Christopher Ashton Kutcher

Place of Birth: Cedar Rapids, Iowa, U.S.

Date of Birth: February 7, 1978

Ethnicity:
*62.5% Bohemian [Czech]
*25% Irish
*12.5% German, including Swiss-German

Ashton Kutcher is an American actor, model, producer, and investor. He is famous for his role on the television series That ’70s Show. Ashton is married to actress Mila Kunis, with whom he has two children.

Ashton’s father is of Bohemian Czech descent. Ashton’s mother is of half Irish, one quarter German (including Swiss-German), and one quarter Bohemian (Czech), ancestry.

Ashton is a practicing follower of Kabbalah, the Jewish religious mysticism. His wife Mila has said of him, “Ashton when we started dating, [was] very religious, very religious, very Jewish,” though he has not formally converted to Judaism.

Ashton’s paternal grandfather was Earl F. Kutcher (the son of Michael John “Mike” Kutcher and Alice Beth Sedlacek). Earl was born in Iowa. Michael was born in Iowa, the son of Czech parents, Jan “John” Kučera and Anna Lenoč/Lenoch. The surname Kucera was later changed to Kutcher. Alice was also born in Iowa, the daughter of František “Frank” Sedláček and Anna Novotny, who were also Czech.

Ashton’s paternal grandmother was Adeline Mary Fisher (the daughter of Frank Fisher and Frances “Fannie” Drtina). Adeline was born in Iowa, and was also of Bohemian (Czech) descent. Frank was the son of Joseph Fisher and Anne Drtina.

Ashton’s maternal grandfather was Vincent Raymond Finnegan (the son of John Edward Finnegan, Sr. and Ellen Lenaghan). Vincent was born in Keokuk County, Iowa. John was from Lisnagore, County Monaghan, Ireland, the son of Michael Finnegan and Anne Mary Maguire. Ellen was also Irish, born in Lisnagore, Killeevan, Newbliss, County Monaghan, the daughter of Terence Lenaghan and Bridget Connolly.

Ashton’s maternal grandmother is Rose Marie Koenighain (the daughter of Donald Jacob Koenighain and Leona Alice Kutcher). Rose was born in Iowa. Donald’s parents, Mathias Koenighain and Ida Mae Brent/Brant, were both of German descent. Their families had lived in the United States (including specifically Pennsylvania) for many generations, and some of their ancestry was Swiss-German. Leona was the daughter of Czech parents, Michael John Kutcher and Alice Beth Sedlacek.

Ashton’s paternal grandfather, Earl F. Kutcher, was the brother of Ashton’s maternal great-grandmother, Leona Alice Kutcher. Thus, Ashton’s parents are first cousins, once removed.

He looks a typical Slavic person.

neiltennant August 3, 2015 at 2:21 pm

has very dark brown hair for a european descent guy

but on the other hand his brother looks different. Light eyes and so

Capricious October 8, 2015 at 6:25 am

What for a European guy?

Many Europeans have dark brown hair. A lot of Germans too have dark hair.

Southern Europeans are mostly dark-haired.

You can say his eyes are dark for someone of Czech and German descent – After the standard white person would have dark hair and blue eyes. But that isn’t a good argument too.

ArnyDiaz October 22, 2016 at 3:52 am

You do realize that the majority of Europeans have dark brown/black hair?

Freerk April 29, 2015 at 3:00 am

The percentages or the first passage can’t be right. Correct is probably: HE is one eighth German decent (12.5%), than HIS MOTHER is a quarter German and a quarter Czech.

Freerk April 29, 2015 at 3:01 am

of one eighth descent, of course …

theropod April 1, 2015 at 7:49 am

He looks Irish on a general note.

Though If I were to see him in Australia I would’ve thought that he is Italian or Serbian.

That’s what I was thinking.

Capricious April 8, 2015 at 1:57 am

Yep. He is sexier with short hair and facial hair. Also, in that pic you linked his gorgeous brown eyes stand out.

J.J. December 18, 2013 at 11:03 pm

correction; his eyes are hazel and his hair is light brown (brunet)

theropod April 1, 2015 at 7:46 am

His eyes are brown for sure. More dark brown. Far from hazel.

Good looking man though. :)

neiltennant July 15, 2015 at 8:07 am

@theropod

please ignore J.J.

he has the distinction to write on every celebrity with BROWN EYES that she or he does have hazel eyes

and at 99 percent of them he is wrong

im not sure why he does this maybe he will prove that whites do have hazel eyes and not dark brown eyes

Capricious October 8, 2015 at 6:27 am

Yeah I noticed. Very ignorant of him.

Is he some sort of a Neo-Nazi or what? Lol…

PITBULL_MR_305 December 17, 2013 at 2:28 pm

@follers, yes, but all of his great-grandparents (except Irish) were from ”catholic” countries, which are very strongly influenced by protestantism. All of ”catholic” Europe, except Ireland, Poland, Portugal, Malta, Central & Southern Spain and Central & Souther Italy are so stronlgy influenced by protestantism, that in fact they are practically protestant. That’s why Northern Spain and Northern Italy are rich, and southern parts of these countries are poor like Portugal and Malta. Because crises stopped recovery of Poland of communism, Poland is still very poor country, but after the crisis ends, Poland will become like Portugal and Malta. It wouldn’t get richer, if they stay catholic. But they wouldn’t stay catholic, because the future of the world is countries with crappy religions to change it with high-quality and high-effective religions, like Protestantism. Of mentioned catholic countries only Ireland is rich (though not stable), but they are exeption, because of the enormous amount of the American insvestments in the country. For example before a few decades (when Ireland was poor) many American corporations like Microsoft moved there headquarters in Ireland, because of then cheap labor force and young, educated, qualified and english-speaking population (as we all know english language is known to be native to Ireland, although in fact it’s not, since it’s import from England at the times of English Conquest Of Ireland). Irish Economic Miracle, or ”Irish Tiger” happened namely due to these enormous amount of American investments. But before that many many irish people emigrated to the U.S to escape from poverty in Ireland. That’s why Irish ancestry is the second most common ancestry of white Americans, after German. Germany allways was, is and allways will be very rich country, as it is not only a protestant country, but cradle of Protestantism, but is a country with huge population, that’s why in absolute values so many Germans emigrated to the U.S. But for sure german emigrants to the U.S (and not only to the U.S) are much smaller percent of German population, than Irish emigrants to the Irish population, and Sicilian/(Southern & Central) Italian emigrants to the Italian population.

Freerk April 28, 2015 at 8:30 pm

As a Northern German atheist (of protestant background) in the catholic Southern Germany I can tell you that the German catholics are far from becoming protestants …

Well, at least 7 out of Ashton’s 8 great-grandparents were Catholic.

ashash October 13, 2014 at 9:53 pm

nnnnn August 29, 2012 at 1:38 pm

How stupid to select “Ashton” and not the first name
“Christopher”. Especially “devoted fans” (D) call him As..ton

follers August 4, 2012 at 8:23 pm

His paternal grandparents, Earl Kutcher and Adeline M. Fisher, were both of Czech (Bohemian) descent.

His maternal grandfather, John Finnegan, was the son of Irish immigrants.

His maternal grandmother, Rose Koenighain, had German and Czech (Bohemian) ancestry.

Roger Is My Lover March 27, 2012 at 6:42 pm

Roger Is My Lover March 27, 2012 at 6:42 pm

He is dating Rihanna.

inkognito March 27, 2012 at 12:01 am

The houseofnames.com informations are completely wrong the name’s kutcher, catcher, cacher and ketcher are uncommon and for the most part nonexistent in the U.K. dynastree.co.uk/ the name kutcher is Americanized from the german name kutscher what means “Carter” verwandt.de/karten/absolut/kutscher.html kutcher’s great-grandparents were Germans from sudetenland (bohemia) the lagest ancestry groups in Iowa 1.German 35,7% 2.Irish 13.5% 3.English 9,2% 4.Norwegian 5,7%

nnnnn November 26, 2012 at 12:00 pm

His father is Bohemian, and Bohemian isn’t German.
The word “Kutscher” is used in slavic languages, too

nnnnn November 26, 2012 at 11:50 pm

Exactly: “Kutschera” or “Kutscherova” for women –
usual name in Bohemia and the whole Czehia

nnnnn November 26, 2012 at 11:59 pm

Sudeten and Bohemia are two different provinces.
I wonder, that such ignorant comment has 16 “likes”
You may be obsessed of some celebritiy, but you
may not define his heritage.

Ktulo December 9, 2011 at 7:14 pm

Kutcher is an English name?, i thought it was German or East European.

hanus October 12, 2011 at 4:04 am

Kutcher = Czech word for curly hair

Nora August 9, 2011 at 12:41 pm

i’m not sure but i think he stated in a german Tv-show (“Wetten, dass…?”) that he had czech ancestors…

eddie May 25, 2011 at 12:22 pm

he has native amerindian admixture

elelelel April 16, 2011 at 1:58 pm

kutcher is a german name….

proudmamaof8 April 16, 2011 at 1:07 am

Tian-

I too have seen him on an interview (maybe a year ago?) saying he was Native American. I believe it was a late night talk show.

ubbghnk August 8, 2011 at 7:49 pm

It was on the David Letterman Show a few years ago while talking about how ironic it was owning an Italian restaurant while being Irish and Native American

raciality 1o1 August 31, 2011 at 4:55 pm

They know, but this whole site is nothing but a schnizzfest and schnapps.

tereza June 11, 2010 at 2:51 am

kutcher… means house in croatian, take that in mind

lhmfrlan July 8, 2010 at 10:41 am

no it does not

Rifka May 31, 2010 at 3:23 pm

i think that aston looks like he might have some german in him.

ethnic January 11, 2010 at 12:40 pm

Tian Id like to see an interview of him saying that. Same with Demi and Richard Dean Anderson.

tian January 9, 2010 at 9:55 am

I have seen Ashton Kutcher HIMSELF saying that he has native american ancestry. I think it was on “punk’d”, or something else on MTV. Anyone else remember that? I’m 100% sure. He doesn’t look fully white to me. His wife Demi is also said to have some native or mexican, she is from new mexico and her name is “Demetria”. Another one I read has Mohawk ancestry is Richard Dean Anderson, “MacGyver”. :) It was on wikipedia but someone erased it!

Lola January 16, 2011 at 5:13 pm

Demi has Native ancestry, it’s “official”. Ashton’s old nose didn’t look that white, and yeah, he doesn’t look totally white.

Anonymous March 13, 2011 at 9:20 pm

You can see Amerindian or Bohemian ancestry in his physical appearance, such as the broad face, broad shoulders and other traits.

ethnic October 4, 2009 at 6:00 pm

Unknown, quite a few sites say that he has Native American ancestry but they dont provide a good source.
